5 stars Van der graaf generator is truly a great band. I don't know much of their work or even the names of the band members, heck, i'm a total music nitwit! I own just two albums from VDGG, present and godbluff. I find the music style to be really unconventional ... if i'm not mistaking they don't use guitars? They use trumpets and stuff ... THe vocals are sexy!

I haven't really listened to the songs seperatly though ... i usually just put the CD in and get carried away. The album has the best opening i've ever heard (which i can recall). I always thought it said "Here ... at the dawn... ", but it doesn't. It says "Here at the glass - all the usual problems, all the habitual farce". This line is so groovy!

I think the album doesn't have like long build ups or anything that lead up to a big climax or anything. Each song is really filled with nice tunes that work your mind every second. They do start swinging in the Sleepwalkers though. A nice ending!

Which all makes i never turn off this album or skip a track (or even consider it).

Ah i'm not gonna go further more in details since i don't have the proper knowledge to expres what i think.

I changed my mind like 3 or 4 times wheter to give it a 4 or 5 star rating. I want to give it a 4 because it's my first review and i don't want to overrate anything, but then again i really think this is very good! And for as far as i know, they're very progressive! They certainly sound like it...

There you got it ... like 15 lines of text and no real information given. That's what you get when newbies do reviews.
